Rondale Moore to be 'fully utilized' in 2022?
The Arizona Republic's Bob McManaman reports Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury wants Rondale Moore "more fully utilized across the offense" this season. Advice
: Kingsbury acknowledged Moore was frustrated about his lack of usage in the Arizona offense after DeAndre Hopkins' season-ending injury in 2021. “All of a sudden his role got minimized more than he anticipated, yeah. I felt the frustration and rightfully so,” Kingsbury said. “He’s a tremendous player. We had a lot of great wideouts last year. I’m big on addressing the problem right there, so you don’t let it fester. ... “We had some difficult conversations, but he’ll get his opportunities this year.”
The "great" receivers Kingsbury referred to include A.J. Green and Antoine Wesley, both of whom out-targeted Moore in the final seven weeks of the 2021 regular season. Deployed strictly as a gadget player over the season's last couple months, Moore saw nine total targets over his final three games before missing Week 16-18 with an ankle injury. Moore during training camp has been used on the outside, in the slot, and out of the backfield. Whether that usage holds up when games count is another question entirely. Hopkins' six-game suspension could create some early-season opportunities for Moore, who is only interesting in PPR formats. NBCSportsEDGE.com
